Black people, particularly Black women, have had enough. Black women have dealt with enough. And even when we are tired, frustrated, angry, hard-pressed on every side, we stand poised, ready for the fight, ready to take on the bullshit this country continues to serve us. With this disgraceful incident report about the murder of Breonna Taylor…
via The Breonna Taylor Incident Report Is A Slap In The Face to ALL Black Women — WriteSomeShit
That is just outrageous!
Everyone has been screeching about George Floyd, but why did Breonna Taylor not receive the same outpouring of support, solidarity and ferocious protesting? Why was Breonna relegated to obscurity outside of Louisville Kentucky? Thankfully, Louisville has not forgotten Breonna Taylor, but the rest of this cesspool of a shithole country has. I for one, refuse to allow the murder of Breonna Taylor to be placed on the back burner, forgotten and some more shit!
Breonna, once again, was an EMT. This woman had devoted her life to helping people. She put her life on the line to haul COVID-19 patients to the hospital. She was studying to become a nurse; she was that intent on doing what she could for sick people and for that, she gets shot 8 times and then those who shot her, lied about how they entered her home and they also lied about her injuries. They said they did not break into her home when they did because they entered via a ‘no knock warrant’ and with a battering ram, entered Breonna’s apartment and the ‘officers’ were in plain clothes. She was shot 8 times and so we damn well know that she had injuries because she’s dead from being shot by the kops! And no one questioned this piece of shit incident report? No one called anyone out on it? Breonna Taylor’s mother had to go on ‘Good Morning America’ to try and get some sort of justice for her daughter.
What is seriously getting my goat up is the fact that those goons in blue uniforms who murdered Breonna Taylor, went into the wrong apartment and shot an innocent Black woman to death for no reason. The person they were after HAD ALREADY BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. Yeah! Let that seep in! Wrap your head around that! Those goons had no business busting down Breonna’s door in the first damn place because the suspect they were after was ALREADY IN CUSTODY! THE ‘NO KNOCK WARRANT’ was for someone who lived in the same building, not the same apartment and who knows if that isn’t a lie!
Breonna’s boyfriend was arrested for attempted murder of the goons that broke down the door and shot his girlfriend to death while those goons are still walking the streets, free as a goddamn bird and they had just murdered an innocent BLACK WOMAN. What fucking sense does that make? Those goons in blue only released Breonna’s boyfriend from jail after public outcry or he would still be behind bars! AGAIN, what fucking kind of sense does this shit make? How do you shoot an innocent Black woman and then arrest her boyfriend for shooting back at your ass when you break down their door, never acknowledge that you are kops and are not in uniform and then lie on an incident report that the woman was never INJURED and you didn’t BREAK DOWN HER DOOR? This is the shit that we are expected to put up with! WHAT.THE.HELL.
I don’t give a damn if I am repeating myself from my previous post about Breonna Taylor, you’re damn well going to read it again because Breonna Taylor’s life mattered. “BLACK WOMEN MATTER!” I am getting real fed up with even Black women caping for Black men, but won’t say a word when the same shit goes down against Black women. We are no less than Black men.
Yes, what happened to George Floyd was horrific and the entire country went the fuck off over it, but why did Breonna’s murder not receive the same? What? Because there was no cellphone footage of Breonna getting shot 8 times by the kops? That should make no difference. An innocent Black woman was murdered in her home while in her own bed and yet we kicked up more of a fuss about a Black male immigrant from St. Lucia getting murdered in his home while eating ice cream because I am pretty sure that everyone remembers Botham Shem Jean.
But for some strange reason, when shit happens to Black women, no one gets into an uproar. No one goes the fuck off and maintains that rage. Why is that? Why Black women? Why Black men?
Speaking as a Black woman, I can honestly say, Black women don’t like other Black women; that is a fact. Even though we share the same troubles, the same heartaches, the same pain, the same shit aimed at us by the whites, we still don’t like each other.
And Black men, for the most part, take Black women for granted. They know that we are always going to be there when they get fucked up; they know that they can take that shit for granted, but when we get fucked up, Black men simply, for the most part, ignore the shit. Well you motherfuckers had better hope that we don’t start doing to you, what you do to us because then your ass is grass! And you’d better figure that shit out!
This is why I despair OF us because we will never get our shit together and come together like we need to and the white motherfuckers see this shit! They know our MO. And that is why they know that they can get away with the shit they do to us; because we are divided. Divided people are a conquered people; you mean, you didn’t know that? Wake the fuck up and recognize! We don’t have a lot of fucking time to get our shit together, Black folks!
From the original article:
“THIS REPORT WAS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO ALL BLACK WOMEN! This report was another way of killing the legacy of Breonna Taylor over and over again. Every single day we fight and wait for justice. But justice too long delayed is often justice denied. Because every day, this city reminds Black women that our lives do not matter. Our lives matter so little, the police can kill us, lie on an incident report, and put that bullshit incident report out in the media without batting an eye. There is absolutely no fucking accountability! No one is in a position of authority and leadership in that department and beyond, and that is why we are where we are today with cowboy cops running into people’s homes and killing them.”
This was indeed, a slap in the face, one among many and if we continue to take this shit, we will continue to get slapped in the face.
STOP FUCKING WITH US BECAUSE WHEN WE FUCK BACK, IT WILL NOT BE PRETTY AND I DONT USE VASELINE!
WE HAVE UPHELD OUR END OF THE BARGAIN! WE HAVE DONE OUR PART, AND BLACK WOMEN ARE TIRED!
I WILL WATCH THIS WHOLE DAMN CITY BURN TO THE GROUND AND SMILE AS I ROAST MARSHMALLOWS IN FRONT OF CITY HALL!
If I had my way, this shithole would be burning from one end to the other WITHOUT LET UP! What the fuck do we have to lose? Think about what you ‘own’ and then figure the shit out! You fucking got NOTHING to lose!
